We bring together talent and expertise from across the University of Minnesota to use stem cell biology to advance regenerative medicine therapies for devastating disorders and to provide education and training for the stem cell scientists of tomorrow.

Our Research

We depend on the variety of knowledge and expertise from faculty and departments across the University and beyond to pursue the collaborative goal of using stem cell technology to change the practice of regenerative medicine.

SCI scientists are making progress in finding treatments for spine and brain injury, heart damage, vision loss, diabetes, genetic disorders, cancer, and the need for organ and skin replacement. 

 

Our Education Programs

The bioscience and medical industries and academic research programs need intelligent, engaged, well-trained talent to fill jobs in the rapidly expanding field of regenerative medicine. The Stem Cell Institute prepares students who are ready to meet this need and who are eager to move the next generation of research forward. Learn more about our graduate programs:
